Fashion for Funerals

Putting the FUN into funerals


Let's talk about it, cry about it, laugh about it, make art about it…But most of all…dress up for it!

Death: Our collective yet predominantly ignored destiny will be faced and embraced in this performance, a multi-media theatrical fashion parade. Fashion for Funerals - Putting the FUN into Funerals is a story-telling platform for writers, film and theatre makers, fashion designers, artists, musicians, psychologists and scientists.

Let's bring death to life by creating a cultural shift in the way we grieve that makes our inevitable end accessible and acceptable. Read about the presenting artist, Kat Pengelly of Koshka.

We support local artists to realise their vision by partnering in the production of performances, exhibitions, festivals and more. Read more about how we collaborate.
